Hardbound. Intergrationism has emerged in the past few years as posing a radical challenge to the orthodoxies of structuralism and generativism in modern linguistics. It proposes a new approach to the problems involved in defining the basic concepts of language.Although various publications have appeared which discuss the integrational approach in detail, this is the first general introduction addressed specifically to students. It explains the fundamental issues on which integrationists contest the basic assumptions of twentieth-century linguistics.Each chapter starts from questions likely to be already familiar to the majority of students in linguistics, and shows how an integrational approach tackles these questions from a novel perspective. The innovative terminology of integrational linguistics is fully explained at every step. An extensive bibliography is provided.
